A Phrase That Does Not Play Again

Phrases Afrikans repeat without analyzing…number 85894040 “Where there is unity there is strength.” Alright, I got the whip for your theoretical proposition Toby. Where there is unity there is strength, IF there is commonality of mission and purpose. A slave planning on leaving with Tubman has no “strength” if his or her “unity” is with a committed plantation House negro.

They still exist unfortunately, those people who are more committed to their position within the system than helping the people empower themselves. They come in all shapes and sizes and if you seek or establish “unity” with them, you and they are going nowhere with skates on.
